Tantrum Throwing Alarm Clock For Lazy Folks

The most interesting feature of this Alarm is that it will throw a tantrum at you if you let it ring for more than a minute. This will go on for an hour but if you still do manage to sleep then for sure your sleep is deserved. Otherwise, everybody would wake up at its tantrum.

Da Vinci Alarm Clock Allows Only Four Hours Nap

Wind-Up Walkie Talkie

With all the functionality of battery ridden chatterboxes such as a 3 km range, 8 channels, LCD display screen and being generally pretty darn rugged, these Walkie Talkies are, as the name suggests, powered by winding them up. The dynamo mechanism knocks past dynamo efforts into a cocked hat, making it simple with just a few cranks to get connected.

The Laser Torchlight sounds like the thing to be carrying around when the Zombie Apocalypse arrives, but me, I think that Tantrum throwing clock is just too cute to ignore!

Com-Bat. The other gadgets are cute, but this one can save lives.

The survival tool is a good thing to have. Very handy.

The spy plane is pretty cool but you have to admit that seeing a hamster ride around in a car would be hilarious!

Jason Says: October 6, 2008 at 3:10 pm

When a gadget can save your life, it is very cool. I wouldn’t travel anywhere (except through airport security ;)) without a survival tool.
